Shining the light of God's word into our confused world.

A non-word-count, and a preview

Well, today was a complete wash (Wash! *sniff*) as far as writing at work goes. Yesterday, I had plenty of time and no inclination. Today I had plenty of inclination but no time. I might be able to hammer out a few hundred words before bedtime tonight, and if I do I’ll post my word count to twitter.

In the meantime, here’s another sneak peek at The Hero Factor (spoiler alert!):

My entire output for today

More from THF:

“Son of a bitch!”

“I don’t know what you’re getting so worked up about. This means you’re your own badass. That’s a good thing!”

“But I don’t want to be a badass! Not unless I’m getting paid large sums of money and leaving the actual badassery to my stunt double.”

That right there constitutes an entire day’s work.

Man, I hope this week gets better.

Well, I’m here. I’ve got a ton of catching up to do. I want to thank everyone for their kind messages, and I’ll get back to everyone individually as the week rolls on.

I got a smidgen of writing done yesterday, but also a lot of background writing on both novels. I went over the Hero Factor outline and realized I only have four scenes left of the “Great Swampy Middle” (tm jimbutcher), and my middle climax is already written, so from there it’s on to Act 3 and coasting downhill to the end. That is good news.

It’s amazing how much writing you can accomplish when you just don’t want to think about real life. :


Summerwrite! Off to a complete non-start.

Auto-transcription of my voice posts never fails to crack me up.

I’m here now, but today has been crazy. Between network problems, meetings, and catching up on all I missed yesterday (which I’m still not done doing yet), I haven’t even had time to think about writing, let alone get started on my word count for the day. There’s also the fact that I’m still feeling a bit icky, and also that my dog is still having seizures, neither of which really lends itself to feelings of creativity.

But things are starting to settle down, so I’m going to put on some tunes and do my best to get some writing done. I’ve got a busy weekend coming up, but I should still manage to carve out a few hours to devote exclusively to writing. I hope.

All right, enough procrastination. Time to get to work.
